Riders known for being hard on their wheels, for not avoiding potholes and for outsprinting people in full pro kit on their way to do the groceries should take a close look at the ER 1600 SPLINE 32. A high-end welded aluminum rim with a huge cross section laced to wide aero spokes leave you with nothing left to desire. And don't be fooled by the classy looks and a silky smooth Ratchet System hub, because the ER 1600 SPLINE 32 really is all about hard riding and reacting to power coming from the strongest calves.

Todd HThese are excellent so far! They roll smoothly and work very with the Continental GP5000 tubeless tires I installed. While I was always skeptical when people claim that new wheels make them go faster, I can say that these do seem to allow faster average speeds for the same output above 16 MPH. Great value!
Scott JordanWheels arrived in excellent condition. They look great and perform well. 18 tooth ratchet is much quieter than I expected. Merlin's price and service was excellent.
Mr WhaitesMy 1st venture into the world of disc brakes so thought I'd splash the cash and get a decent set of wheels at a reasonable price. I went for the wider rimmed Endurance Race to be my road alternatives on my new gravel bike with 28mm tyres (as opposed to the Performance Road with narrower rims). A friend suggested paying extra to get the 1600s due to their ease of re-lubing/accessing the hubs following a harsh winters commuting. They are light, handle majestically and look pretty damn cool with the deeper rim (note the hubs are closer to a matte silver than white which was a bonus). Only ridden a 100 miles or so on them but so far so good. Quality product from DT Swiss.
